Optical fiber FFTH 16Mbps -Speed

Hi,

We just got a BSNL 16 mbps fiber line to our premises 3 weeks ago. Since BSNL did not have any other fiber connections in our area (Indirapuram) we were made to pay full 2 years in advance (about 1.6 Lacs) as the min contract on our part.

Anyway, the results have been nothing but shocking!

Apparently the 16 mpbs fiber line has a download speed of 1.04 Mbps and upload speed of 0.35 Mbps.

I have tested with a number of servers and sites and it's has never been over 2 Mbps! This is even slower than my Vodafone “3G” speed. Even sites like gmail are taking up to 2 minutes to open!

Their customer care is useless so I have notified everyone from the SDO to the GM to the person in charge of routing but they just won’t do a thing. Nine out of ten times they don’t reply. Only one time someone did and it was only to say that I need to contact someone else.

This is the most pathetic service I have ever seen and having paid a ton of money upfront only makes it graver.

Can someone tell me who should I contact and what should I do about this?

Any word of advice would be appreciated.

Regards,
San.

Considering these guys are a public sector, I think an RTI would also help

Because you can get Information, By RTI, what will be the next step ?Go to court? Engage lawyer/s and attend court/s for adjournments etc ?Get BSNL staff arrested for false claims and cheating ?This could be a simple technical problem and the user should first try the avenues available and meet the top Technical officers in BSNL. If the connection is cancelled, what alternate ISPs are available for the user ?

Which company installed the stuff at your place ? Bsnl, aksh or someone else ? I could help you out if it is either bsnl or aksh. The first time my fiber connection went live, the pings were in excess of 700 ms, the aksh guys made a few calls and they were fixed in a few hours.

Hi,

I will surely take them to MRTPC if this isn't fixed soon. Anyway, the other alternatives are Hathway and Tikona and I've tried them both but they are no good. 3G speed from my Vodafone is good but bandwidth is very limited. Which is why I'm still trying to fix this amicably first.

I have written to just about anybody I could find on the BSNL site but they won't listen. So far I've sent 17 emails but not even one single reply except one which said it doesn't fall under them. Further, I've handed out hard copies of the same to all the officers I could reach but they keep passing the buck. The guy who is in charge said on the phone I need to talk to the "banglore noc" but when I wrote to them they said and I'm quoting it exactly: "THE CASE DOES NOT COME UNDER BANGALORE SSA PL."

Thank you for the link. I just did it.

I'm pretty sure it was BSNL guys but I will inquire. Also, would you be kind enough to post your speedtest (dot) net results for my reference? Thanks!
